Is the site secure?

Yes. CCTV covers the car park and entrance areas, there are no public footpaths crossing our grounds and the site is ringed by a perimeter fence. It is helpful if leaders can remind campers not to climb fences.

What is the site policy on the videotaping or photographing of young people?

Parental permission is required for adults to film or photograph young people while they are at camp. Any filming must not be for public release or identification. For additional information please contact the centre manager.

When and how should we pay the bill?

Payment should be made before your departure, or before your camp. Payments can be made by cash or cards, and by cheques or BACS transfer.

Can we hire equipment?

We have a variety of equipment that can be hired including; tents, mess tents, tables, chairs and BBQs. More information can be found here and pricing details are available here.

Where do ashes have to be put at the end of our visit?

Ashes should be emptied into the labelled metal dustbins, located behind the woodpile. You MUST NOT put hot ashes in the skips.

What waste disposal facilities are there?

We have general waste skips, which also double as our recycling bins, located in the main car park. Rubbish is sorted by the disposal company.

Can we freeze ice blocks?

There is a freezer and a refrigerator in the service crew bungalow porch for campers to use. Anything left in the fridge/freezer is left at your own risk and responsibility.
